As I listen the rain

Each new drop’s a fresh new pain

Memories blossom in my brain

As I listen to the rain


To new places you have gone

Laughing as you travel on

Never caring, dusk til dawn

It’s my heart you’ve walked upon


As I sit and watch the sky

Cry the tears I cannot cry

Clouds all hide the reasons why

As I sit and watch the sky


Others hold you in their arms

Never hearing the alarms

Muffled by your many charms

Unaware your poison harms


Solitude’s new denizen

Seems the sun won’t shine again

I was very happy then

Guess I’ll just remember when….
